Bar/Bat Mitzva

Bar/Bat Mitzvah is one of the major elements in the Jewish life cycle. For this reason, we make a great effort to ensure that the period of study and the ritual experience be very meaningful for the young person and the entire family.
The study program for a Bar/Bat Mitzvah lasts for four months and the young person works with the Rabbi of the kehila. In addition to learning how to read Torah and the Haftara, the young person also is introduced to the basic tenets of the Jewish world; using  an holistic approach, the student who is soon to enter the world of young adulthood, becomes more aware of his/her Jewish heritage and culture.
Our kehila offers the option of “laying tefillin” (for the first time) at the southern end of the Western Wall in Jerusalem known as “Robinson’s Arch.” At this very impressive location, in the Masorti mode (mixed seating and equality of expression), this particular ceremony is held prior to the Bar Mitzvah day. For those who are interested, there is also an option of participating in a guided tour of the area of one of the most spectacular sites in the city.
Rabbi Ary Glikin, Rabbi of Torat Hayim, will be pleased to discuss the Bar/Bat Mitzvah training with interested families.
